!Ebook ♴ All I Really Need To Know I Learned in Kindergarten ⚖ When Asked What He Does, Robert Fulghum Usually Replies That He Is A Philosopher, And Explains That What He Likes To Do Is To Think About Everyday Things And Then To Express What He Thinks By Writing, Speaking Or Painting This Is A Collection Of His Favourite Observations, Written Over The Years, That Reveal Simple Truths About Small Lives With Big Meanings The only people who learned all they needed to know in kindergarten are the people who died when they were six This stupid book is as facile as its title. When I read this book years ago, my first thought was that it would make an excellent Christmas gift for anyone who I couldn t figure out what else to get The simple philosophy of living that it promotes and the author s easy going style of prose would elicit a smile from a stone I can t quite say that it changed my life, but I was certainly charmed by this book It also taught me a lesson in the money making potential of publishing because I happened to work for Ballantine at the time and was constantly issuing purchase orders for reprints of huge quantities of this little paperback I recall that it only cost about a quarter per book to produce and we were charging 6 or 7 for it, quite a nice profit for the little goldmine that could The author visited our office one day and acted exactly the way you would have expected him to, like the wise, charming grandpa you never actually had. Essentially the GREATEST book I ve ever read I loved the humor, but it also expressed hidden truths that integrate themselves into our day to day lives in a quirky sort of way I thoroughly enjoyed the insight that you received through out the entirety of the book Made me think about thingslots of things Mr Fulghum reminds me a lot of, well, ME I thought it was stunning. I find it funny that so many people who reviewed this book made comments about the title Why on earth does the title really matter I know I have read hundreds of books with odd titles, but I did not base my review on it.This book was easy to read I read it in one rainy afternoon I did not pick this book up to find the answers of life I read it because it seemed light and fun which it was.I feel the book is very cool hundreds of times I have thought random, misc thoughts and told myself, I should write that down, but of course never do.Fun, coffee table type book that I will keep around and read again someday The first time I read this book, I found it annoying I called it trite It seemed too simple But on continuing to think about it and rereading parts of it, I decided it deserved better than two stars Maybe the truest lessons in life are learned early on and we just forget them or run over them in our desires for success or to fit in or out of our many fears I guess the current political social climate has made me take these lessons less for granted They are ideals for which we need to continue to reach, attempt to embody Simple maybe but not easy to live out. So, I don t understand why this is a New York Times best seller To each his own, then But to me, this book felt like a venue for the author to explain away his own mulling The title is All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten a and it sounds like an excuse to be a bit too childish and simplistic b but hardly any of the book is about things he really learned in Kindergarten.I don t know I m just really confused, annoyed, and disappointed.
